OMG Finally im reaching the final line, its a LAST DAY of me being in Korea which also means this is the LAST POST of my long-trail Korea travelog. nomu chukeyo Suzai! a big applause also to those whos been following this series since the very beginning. thanks a lot guys, you are definitely my main motivation!

So, lets continue the Korea travelogue, day 9. you may check on my previous post BUSAN DAY 1 , JEJU DAY 1 or SEOUL DAY 1 Again, in total we spent 12 days in Korea, Busan (2D1N) then Jeju Island (4D3N) and our final stop was Seoul (6D5N) 

indeed one of the luxurious shopping mall in Seoul

obviously HALAL. Nah for those whos planning to stay longer and also plan to cook each meal!
who'd thought that Malaysian brands are all here!

this price may be changed as this photo was taken on Oct 2015

Lotte World Shopping Mall (롯데월드 쇼핑몰)

Im now totally don't have the idea on whats the exact reason of this visit since we've already went inside this massive shopping mall on the very 1st day in Seoul. the moment when we're looking for the Hard Rock Cafe Seoul. well, i guess it was because we suddenly read that you can get "The Cheapest Korean Banana Uyu" in here and yup in bundle! HAHA so as this was the last night in Seoul, we just decided to bring back as many as we could.

How To Go?

Opt 1 : Jamsil Station (Seoul Subway Line 2, 8), Exit 1, 2, 10, 11

Operating hour? 10am to 8pm (weekdays) | 10pm (Fri Sat Sun)

when a crowd gathered like this, it means....

some "trainee" are performing the latest Kpop acts!

HAHA ive been looking for this brand all over Seoul and ended up one huge shop in Hongdae. you know what? HAHA the price tags are crazey! all items are like RM100+ so bye!

my honest review, clothing in Seoul is surprisingly SUPER EXPENSIVE! mission fail huhu

ahakak pening dik non, Hongdae ni serabut! HAHA

Hongdae (홍대)

Hongdae is obviously a place for youngsters! it caters lot of #hipster cafe, great vibe for those music lovers and yeah, SUPER CROWDED and messy too! HAHA our mistake for visiting this place on a weekend. furthermore, this was on Saturday night plus we were already super exhausted as we're playing the tourist game since early morning. oh yar, it was RAINING HEAVILY too!

so, nampak tak level stress tu? HAHA kami dua "orang tua" terus serabut, pening kepala, giving up to explore more and we're mutually agree to just have our dinner at Yoogane, strolling around for like 30 minutes and then going back Myeondong for a final beauty shopping. ahaks!

How To Go?

Opt 1 : Stop Hongik University Station (Seoul Subway Line 2, Gyeongui-Jungang, AREX), Exit 8 or 9. 

Reminder? HAHA try to avoid weekend!

 its an old market. pretty!

a shop that specially for Malaysian. haha they can speak bahasa ok?

OMG cute kan? kain cotton cute-cute macam ni memang geram!

hanbok anyone? nak kawen pakai hanbok boleh la tempah kat sini.. errr..

something nice to buy as a souvenir. ini CERMIN MUKA F.Y.I kot ada yg blur HAHA

Famous for live seafood also leyh!

Gwangjang Market (광장시장)  (Best Fabrics Market in Seoul)

The oldest and the largest Traditional market in Seoul. literally, its a market that sell everything! foods, fruits, fish, meats, clothes, textiles, kitchen utensils, handicrafts, souvenirs and etc etc but the most popular finding in here are the korean street FOODS and FABRICS! omg i swear that the live seafood (especially that giant octopus!) was making me salivating! HAHAHA yup i was dying wanna try it but we're quite hesitate on the HALAL-ness (haha) of the whole cooking process. the "stall" is very simple, some of them is like you have to pick the items, they will grill it in front of you and then, grab a stool and seat at the shared table. fun huh?!

So, here is the famous place of buying that Korean Silk. specifically, the shop name is HYUN WOO SILK, they're offering the cheapest price in Seoul and variety of choices too. they even claimed that they designed the fabrics themselves but i have no intention of buying since i've already broke at this moment. HAHA it was our last day before departing back to KL on the next morning. so, my friend bought few for her and her mom. sorry, i forgot the price, will consult her and edit this later! hehe

Anyhow, you may check this blogpost, she writes in detail about those fabrics pricing. here

How To Go?

Opt 1 : Stop at Jongno 5-ga Station (Seoul Subway Line 1), Exit 8.
Opt 2 : Stop at Euljiro 4-ga Station (Seoul Subway Line 2 & 5), Exit 4.

Operating hour? 9am to 10pm ?? it depends (closed on Sunday)
